Charges have been authorized against a driver in a crash that killed a newlywed couple in July in western Michigan just a few miles from where they tied the knot a few weeks earlier.

The Allegan County sheriff's office announced the update Tuesday, saying the suspect's name would be released after he's arraigned.

The sheriff's office has said 24-year-old Logan Thunderland Allbaugh and 22-year-old Hannah (Kwekel) Allbaugh died following the crash in Heath Township after a car drove through a stop sign and struck their vehicle . The couple's car then spun out into southbound lanes, where it was hit by another vehicle.

Charges include operating while intoxicated causing death and reckless driving causing death; operating while intoxicated causing serious injury and reckless driving causing serious injury; and a weapons charge.
